Master of Professional Accountancy Program

If you are interested in expanding your knowledge of accounting beyond an undergraduate degree, the Master of Professional Accountancy (MPA) program may be what you are seeking.  MPA classes are available on the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater campus.  The program requires a minimum of 30 credits plus the satisfactory completion of an MPA exam in your final term of enrollment.  Coursework will prepare you for understanding topics such as auditing, law, and ethics.  You will be able to analyze financial statements, accounting systems, cost controls, and taxation. 

The University of Wisconsin – Whitewater’s MPA program follows directly from the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) undergraduate degree in accounting. For students who do not have a bachelor’s degree with a major in accounting or business, UW-Whitewater is still able to accommodate your interest in the MPA.  By completing the necessary business and/or accounting background courses, you can move forward to fulfill the MPA degree requirements. Talk to an advisor to understand your options.

The MPA program satisfies the required 150-credit-hour requirement of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), allowing graduates to be licensed after successfully completing the Uniform CPA Examination.
